I posted today on FACEBOOK that I love to watch the Cooking Channel, but I hate to cook. Sadly, it is very true. Half the time I make an awesome menu plan, purchase groceries and then half the produce rots because we on the run during the week and I didn't allow myself enough time to prepare and cook everything. Is it my fault? YES, but what can a mom of 3 busy daughters do? Here is my rationale for hating to cook:
1) I don't know how to cook. Any directions with more depth than turn the oven to 350 & throw in chicken nuggets is a problem.
2) My mom was a fantastic cook (albeit her cooking was full of fat) and I was always in some after school sport. So why did I have to learn?
3) I refuse to cook unhealthy meals...so I just don't cook?
4) The family dinner table....excuse me, what is that? Rarely see that any more.
I found this article about healthy eating tips from around world. Hopefully, it will help me and you get back on track for the summer.
